Have you ever stared a problem for 3-4 hours only to have someone write down a 10 minute fix to solve it? That happened to me, and it lead me to feverishly study design patterns. In that study I found 12 patterns that I cannot live without. They help me solve complex problems in consistent ways and give a framework for building huge functionality in very little code. In this talk we will dive through the code and the patterns that can be applied to it so that you can benefit that that study too. Repository, Specification, and 10 more that are just as powerful will be where we start, but we may end by building the ultimate pattern. Few people know, but patterns are like the power rangers. When you combine them together you get something super powerful, and equally awesome!
